Roman Silver and Carnelian Intaglio Ring - 7.6 G

Roman, Imperial Period, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. A fine silver ring with broad shoulders, a recessed ovoid bezel, and a thin but sturdy band. An ovoid carnelian intaglio of warn red-orange hues is set within the bezel and bears an incised depiction of an abstract zoomorphic creature, perhaps a recumbent deer or antelope, laying next to a small shrub. A gorgeous and wearable example of ancient jewelry from the Roman Empire!

Condition: Wearable as shown. Surface wear and minor abrasions commensurate with age to ring and intaglio, very minor nicks and light roughness around band and peripheries, light fading to incised intaglio details, and some tarnishing to silver components, otherwise intact and very good.
